A question if I may...
Where did you get the Burj Khalifa's roof height ?

It's been a while since I looked into the roof height for Burj Khalifa, but it is available if you google it.

The Sail @ Marina Bay Tower 2: 215m

One Shenton Tower 1: height unknown, 50 floors + a crown of around 13 floors, (T/O)
I have 16 towers for Singapore accounted for, but just one of the Sail towers. Are both Sail towers complete and over 200m? I don't have DBS, Ocean Financial, or One Shenton Tower 1. If you could let me know about One Shenton Tower 1 and the question regarding Sail, I'll add both.

I will bump Singapore up to 18 for now, then possibly 20 when I get confirmation on the other 2.

I will fix the Dubai numbers as well.

Sorry everyone! What if we shared it? You're really thorough and a great contributor. The next few weeks are going to be very hectic so what if you made updates? To keep things consistent, perhaps use the same template and remember there are two lists to update: the city list and the country list.

If you're interested let me know. How's your geography? I had to do a little research to know what country every city on the list is in. There were a few I didn't know of at all: Hwaseong, Kaohsiung, Urumqi, and Kish!

Additions/Correction:

DBS Building Tower One, Singapore, Singapore 201 m
Dubai bumped to 55 buildings from 51

Dubai taking over the #1 spot deserves something a little extra to mark this milestone in our list. A new #1 deserves to be bolded in red, and you get a big dance. Congratulations Dubai!

thanks.

but i'm on vacation in august - my flight takes off next wednesday. i'll be back at the beginning of september, so it won't be possible to keep the thread updated - i'll access SSC mainly through my phone, if at all.

i think this thread is worth being updated regularly due to its nature, so i'm more than willing to contribute. but as i said, i can't do much next month.

Looks like Dubai might run away with this thing. I expect that Shanghai will eventually reel in Hong Kong and New York to create a 3 way dog fight for 2nd! I'm also really impressed with Singapore.

yeah, dubai has so much going on that i absolutely see no possibility of other cities catching up in the next 2, 3 years. shanghai needs about 5 more buidings U/C to catch up with HK and NY. also i must admit that i'm worried about HK, hopefully we can develop new 200m+ projects in the near future = this year.

Count your blessings. I'm still waiting for my city, Toronto, to crack the top tier and move out of the 'On The Bubble' grouping. Another thing I noticed: if Singapore had never separated from Malaysia, they would be at 29 buildings (6th spot), and very close to moving into the 4th spot ahead of Japan and South Korea!

Work is ramping up and I made things worse by joining a (Canadian) football team! It's only flag football as opposed to tackle (helmet/pads/contact) and recreational, but it's filling the small amount of time that I did have.

I'm already banged up from head to toe. Sprained finger, pulled glute, and pulled hamstring.
